How to Make Cabinet Doors with Rail and Stile Router Bits | Skill Builder

Learn how to build cabinet door frames using a rail and stile router bit set. Most cabinet doors – especially if they are made in a factory – have frames that are assembled with rail and stile joints, also commonly called cope and stick joints. These joints feature a decorative profile, such as a flat shaker edge, a rounder, or an ogee, that frames the panel, and a groove that contains the panel. Building cabinet doors is easy when you have a rail and stile router bit set to cut these joints.

  1. Will these bits work on 1/2 thick wood or does it need to be 3/4". Not doing an inset panel but a piece of 1/8" glass set in from the back(like a picture frame.)

  2. Great video! Clear and well instructed. I bought the Freud Premier adjustable Rail & Stile Set (Shaker Profile) and then when I got it, it’s like now what 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. I've had a nice shaker door bit set for 2 years but now I finally have the confidence to try them out! This was so helpful.
